Black Friday Bargain

I've been looking at a 360 head for time lapse work but they're all a bit pricey for what will essentially be an occasional toy - so imagine my surprise when Manfrotto ran a short special price on their PIXI Pano360. Normally it goes for £130, cheapest I've seen it is £90 but for a few hours on Thursday it was listed at £19.95 and I managed to bag one.......Woo Hoo!!!!

It sits on a tripod and is controlled via a blue tooth remote or a phone via a dedicated app. A full 360 spin takes an hour so a sweep of the beach was about thirty minutes and a little over 800 photographs at 2 second intervals taken with my X100T

While that was going on I had time to play with my X-T3 and catch the sunrise proper...

Wow that’s an impressive gadget. The sunrise image is what caught my eye though. Love the composition, colours, sky.
